Attend annexation debate

The annexation debate over the governance for Western and Northern Communities is scheduled for tonight at 6:30 p.m. in the Santa Clarita City Council chambers.

Inquiring minds interested in the annexation of the SCV’s unincorporated communities should make every effort to be there to at least hear the debate, observe the presentations, and understand what are the effects of the present Stevenson Ranch, Westridge, Castaic, Val Verde and Tesoro del Valle areas.

Residents’ choices on the Nov. 3 ballot are: 1. remain in the unincoporated L.A. County; 2. join the city of Santa Clarita; or 3. form our own city.

David Bossert, West Ranch Town Council member, was quoted in The Signal Sept. 19 saying that “the vote on Nov. 3 is nonbinding but will help guide future of governance.”

Doesn’t it seem only reasonable that community members hear the arguments, see the displays, listen to the presenters and decide for themselves what is best for the community? Some countries don’t allow you such freedom.

The least we can do is show up! And when in doubt watching the proceedings ... watch the privilege and follow the money.
